D DOUBLE E

D Double E (DEE) is the emcee’s MC. Among his peers and grime fans, he comfortably sits as one of the top 3 selected mic controllers of all time. An English language scholar from the grime school of hard knocks, DEE’s spent the last fifteen years reviving the art of skillful wordplay. And behind the irreverence and jokes is a detailed and prevalent strain of street philosophy, one where illusion-ridden lifestyles are played out and vocabularies and mic styles are put to the test.

Having begun cutting his teeth on jungle sets before moving onto UK garage and grime (before it had a name), his time in NASTY Crew alongside Kano, Jammer and co solidified DEE’s musical direction. Teaming up with long-time friend Footsie (and former member Monkstar) the Newham Generals were born and DEE’s authority and writing skills became uncontestable. Tracks like ‘Frontline’, ‘Prang Man’ and ‘War Wid’ now promise to up the ante in any space with a sound system.
